Using the Lab Balance Model Number to Calculate Capacity and Readability

Eg. XB3200D = Capacity: 3200g

Readability: 0.01g

The number used in the model number (3200) is the max capacity (or at least within a couple of hundred grams).

The readability can be worked out from the suffixed letter/s (D):

  • G = 1g
  • D = 0.1g (deci)
  • C = 0.01g (centi)
  • M = 0.001g (milli)
  • A = 0.0001g (analytical)
  • SM = 0.00001g (semi-micro)
  • [2 letters] – [DR or FR] = eg. IBK 34000DG-FR 0.1g/0.01g (dual range/floating ranges)

Dual or Floating Range Lab Balance

For Dual or Floating Range balances it is worth investigating the supporting text or directly contacting Precisa to find out the upper limits of the first range to ensure that it meets you requirements and that you do not lose accuracy as you move between the ranges.
